Data warehouses and On-Line Analysis Processing (OLAP) have acknowledged and efficient solutions for helping in the decision making process. Through OLAP operators, online analysis enables the decision-maker to navigate and view data represented in a multi-dimensional manner. But when the data or objects to be analyzed are complex, it is necessary to redefine and enhance the abilities of the OLAP. In this paper, the authors suggest combining OLAP and data mining in order to create a new visualization operator for complex data or objects.
